ROLE OF THE GUARD & EXTENSION OF DOO – ARRIVA RAIL NORTH

Our Ref: BR2/0146

31st August 2017

Dear Colleague,

REMINDER – STRIKE ACTION CALLED FRIDAY AND MONDAY

ROLE OF THE GUARD & EXTENSION OF DOO – ARRIVA RAIL NORTH

I write further to my letter dated 18th August 2017 in relation to the above matter and where I informed you that no progress had been made with the company during our latest talks. Unfortunately, the company has made no attempt to resolve this dispute and are still trying to do everything in their power to destroy the safety critical Role of the Guard.  

Therefore, Strike action remains on and all Conductors, Conductor Instructor and Train Driver members are still instructed not to book on for any turns of duty that commence between:

•    0001 Hours and 2359 Hours on Friday 1st  September 2017

•    0001 Hours and 2359 Hours on Monday 4th  September 2017

The unity and support you and your colleagues have already shown throughout this dispute has been phenomenal and I urge you all to continue with this fantastic solidarity. We must support this action and send Arriva Rail North a clear message that we will not standby and allow them to destroy the vital safety critical role of the guard.

NO TO DOO!
SUPPORT YOUR UNION
SUPPORT THE STRIKE ACTION


Best wishes
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
